(Golden Perfection) Very sweet, pale green flesh is just marvelous. Yellow and loosely netted, a very beautiful melon. This was one of our top melons in our 2003 trials, truly incredible! It was listed in Vilmorin's book The Vegetable Garden in 1885, but is very rare now. An all-time favorite and a dream for market growers.

We loved this melon this year! It was the star of our garden. We had lots of them. They are so beautiful and delicious. Some of them were big as volleyballs. We will definately grow these again--they are our new favorite melon!

We'll be growing these again. They are still going strong (Oct. 6!!!) As other reviewers mentioned, you need to leave them on the vine much longer than the other melons. They need to turn a yellow/green/orange golden color. The flesh inside is green with a tinge of orange in the center by the seeds when ripe. Smell is very delicate, it's not an overwhelming cantaloup or musky smell, very fine and sweet. These melons would be good for farmers markets as well as home gardens, they are very easy to grow and will take a lot more neglect than other melons.

We tried the Boule de ore golden honey due this year and had great results. For me they were ready when they turned bright yellow. Out of 10 melons we grew on one bush, only one split and went bad. Sweetest melons I'v ever grown, and they are heirloom, yahoo.

this melon was hard to know when ripe. it was a good setter with strong vines. very late. produced good yields. they don't slip from the vine when ripe. when u think its ready to pick. wait another week or so then pick them. if picked at the right time they are very sweet. they catch everyones eye at the farmers market. beautiful melon. they also have a long shelf life. i'm going to try this one again.
